Philosophy & Approach

Definition:  Mediation is a process in which parties to a dispute meet with a neutral third party who helps them reach their own agreement.

Underlying Principles of Mediation: 

·        The dispute is valid to the disputants

·        People can generally resolve their own problems; they may have to have help in identifying resources.

·        If people participate in the process, they have a stake in the outcome.

Basic Value of Mediation:

·        Understanding (not agreement)

·        Accepting (not trying to change)

·        Involving (empowering the parties)
